On another note, players will soon be receiving a digital "Thank You bundle" as a sign of appreciation. "This does not align with Crystal Dynamics' value of craftsmanship, and for that we sincerely apologize".

This bundle will include 1,500 Credits (enough to buy a Legendary Skin and Nameplate from the Marvel's Avengers Marketplace), 7,000 Units (enough for a Legendary Skin from the Helicarrier Cosmetic Vendor), 250 Upgrade Modules (for upgrading high-level gear), 20 DNA Keys (to unlock special blue crates), and a Sarah Garza-inspired Nameplate.

Amos gave some indication of what's on the way in the near future, including a ping system that will let you instruct AI teammates to smash through doors or target certain enemies. "Marvel's Avengers' launch was not without turbulence, and we recognize that a number of issues detracted from your enjoyment of the game", he said. The first Omega-Level Threat mission will reward you with an exotic drop the first time you complete it. Both new characters and new versions of the games won't appear as planned.

In the update, Amos cited quality and meeting expectations as reasons for the delay, saying that it wanted to work on "extensive internal testing".

While the most anticipated content has been delayed, Amos assured players that performance and stability, multiplayer matchmaking, rewards, and late-game content is all being worked on at the studio.

The developer assures that you'll still be able to play the game on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility, and once the next-gen upgrade is ready to roll out, you'll be able to transfer your progress across "to continue playing seamlessly", with cross-gen cross-play also promised. "More details to come". This is, in part, why we have taken our responsibility developing Marvel's Avengers so seriously. "We may be apart, but we are all in this together".
